Are penalty doubles a thing of the past?
1) I think it depends on whether 1 is forcing. If it is, the P here should be forcing since your side is basically forced to 2 anyway if opener passes. Given that, it would seem penalty would make sense. If 1 is NF, then TO seems ...
What do you expect from partner?
It is not against the law to bid 3 with 3 if opener has doubleton spade, since they are guaranteed to have 8 spades, and your side has at least 8 hearts, or if responder has 4 spades, then he will have 6+ hearts.

Strangely until a few years ago, SF hotels were far more affordable than NY or Boston. I was staying in nice Union Square area boutique hotels for $50 and what is now the Whitcomb Hotel on Market Street for $70. But now you can't get anything for less than ...

Interesting, it seems Precision 2 is not allowed in Basic(+) unless it promises a 4+ second suit. Nor is Precision 1 promising 1+ .
